Pains of February

As the month of February comes to a close, NBA teams are going through the dog days before the final stretch drive begins. For teams like the Miami Heat, it has been a slog, as they lost at home 129-126 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was the seventh loss in the last ten games for Miami. Also struggling are the Philadelphia 76ers, who we beaten up by the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-94. Injuries have plagued Philadelphia as Joel Embiid left the game with a sore shoulder, joining Ben Simmons on the sidelines.
